British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has revealed he is feeling great after entering self-isolation – after coming into contact with a positive case this week – and is encouraging anyone contacted by NHS test and trace to be compliant.
“The good news is that NHS test and trace is working ever more efficiently, that bad news is they’ve pinged me and I’ve got to self-isolate,” Mr Johnson said in a video posted on Twitter.
“It doesn’t matter that I’m fit as a butcher’s dog, feel great, so many people do in my circumstances.
“It actually doesn’t matter that I’ve had the disease and I’m bursting with antibodies, we’ve got to interrupt the spread of disease and one of the ways we can do that now is self-isolating for 14 days when you get contacted by NHS test and trace.”
He also spruiked the nation’s “two gigantic boxing gloves with which to wallop our foe into submission”, which were rapid turn around testing and the prospect of a vaccine in the near future.
